There are many blockchain projects, with just as many protocols, and this has resulted in a universe littered with independent blockchain ecosystems, all of which are operating alongside each other – and more importantly - siloed from each other.


Of course, this silo-mentality between blockchains will prevent blockchain as a complete technology from reaching its full potential. With blockchain on the cusp widespread acceptance and adoption, join Aviva Ounap, host of Crypto and Blockchain Talk and Rafael Belchior, PhD Candidate from Técnico Lisboa as they discuss the interoperability issue, the future of blockchain, and what we should expect in the future.
